Critic Reviews for The Human Race
The central gimmick is just another excuse to let the bloodletting commence in this low-budget thriller.
Despite the essentially formulaic nature of the proceedings, the film does boast some nasty twists that prove galvanizing.
Instead of a grandly ghoulish dash for survival, the movie revels in ghastly behavior with a mouthbreathing concentration that's as irritating as it is worthless.
Most of the characters are either types or anonymous bodies in motion... but the handful with backstories are well played by a cast composed largely of actors with respectable and diverse TV and indie-movie credits.
This is a laughably bad movie, but an amazing drinking game waiting to happen.
By the time half the contestants have been offed you may be less interested in who will win than when it will all be over.
Real suspense and shocks are MIA in a movie that's eventful but lacks the atmospherics needed to be scary.
Though the dialogue is pretty basic and the narrative dots don't always quite connect, "The Human Race," in its own gutsy, grindhouse-movie way, manages style, vision and tension.
The Human Race, a dreary, smeary, low-low-budget but even lower-inspiration horror flick, is likely to leave viewers rueing the craven, disappointing species into which they were born.
a bleak and often bloody portrait of humanity as a plaything for drives and forces beyond its comprehension or control.
